On Tuesday a video of Jeremy Corbyn helping a woman with a pram went viral.

The video was tweeted by Angie Williams.

The Labour leader's ability to act like a member of the public has endeared him to... Well, the public.

Theresa May, by contrast, well, what can we say?

Here she is, reading with children, like a monster.

Jeremy Corbyn did this too.

In April the Prime Minister was photographed volunteering as a marshal at the Maidenhead Good Friday race for charity.

The cheek of it.

Here she is in 2001, having a laugh with then Lib Dem MP Richard Allan, in a game of musical chairs.

It was the 40th anniversary of the Pre-School Learning Alliance.

In 2016 she was a presenter at the Women of the Year Awards.

May had the honour of presenting the Special Award to Margaret Aspinall on behalf of all the families of the survivors of the Hillsborough disaster.

As Home Secretary, May had worked with the Hillsborough Family Support Group (chaired by Aspinall).

When May was appointed Prime Minister in July 2016, Aspinall told the Liverpool Echo

Everything she has promised us she has fulfilled.

We’ve met her predecessors and no one, apart from Alan Johnson, listened to us at all.

When we got a Conservative government we didn’t know how things would pan out but she has done even more for us than she said she would.

She added.

Margaret Thatcher was an absolute disgrace as a Prime Minister and I’m not scared to say that.

Theresa May has more compassion and is a more caring and thoughtful person.

And here she is in March 2017, waving at a group of children.

Share if you think this is a disgrace.
